Wheeling Association of Anime and Comic
Please comment if you are still coming. I want to make sure someone will be there to put away the video equipment if I get it out. ^_^ And to watch one of the two fabulous ADV preview discs I've recieved since our last meeting... including previews of Kaleido Star, Meet the Fuccons, Yumeria, and more!!! So if you do brave the snow, it'll be worth it. ^_^
Hope y'all enjoyed Ohayocon. I wasn't feeling well enough to go. :( Can't wait to see all the junk you guys bought. :D
I have to work this weekend, but I'll go the library and set up everything for you guys. So please show up and watch some anime! We've got some new stuff from ADV this time. (And please also put the projector and everything away when you are done.) So if you are coming, please comment (remember, you don't have to be an LJ user to comment!).
As soon as I can get a Saturday afternoon off, we need to have a meeting to elect new officers. This is seriously vitally important to the future of the club. Without a vice president who can be relied upon to come to meetings when I can't -- we can't have a club at all. If we have to, we'll go from weekly meetings to monthly ones, to make things easier, but without a new VP, the club's done. I'll post a date for this meeting as soon as I have one.
I just madea really quick and easy discussion board for the Ohayocon trip.
This is because it looks like we aren't going to have any more meetings before the trip. O.o This Saturday I'm working, next Saturday is Christmas Eve, Saturday after THAT is New Year's Eve (my parent's anniversary -- but maybe you guys can get together?)... and then Ohayocon.
Sorry, I know I should have planned it better... ;_; T_T
Here's the address for the board: http://www.quicktopic.com/34/H/7F9KRYp7tRy
If you want to schedule a non-Saturday meeting, or meet on New Year's Eve w/o me, that would be great. You can use the comments section if you want.
(PS -- Amanda, heard anything from your art teacher who was going to help us with the Stifel thing?)
Okay its 23 days till Ohayocon, we really need to pick a day to meet up, work on costumes and discuss what our plans are going to be. Are we going to travel in groups or are we going to run amuk and hope to get ahold of eachother by walkie talkies again(which by the way no one really had them "ON" during Otakon, which is because they go dead). I am not ordering everyone around or anything I am just hoping we will be able to hang out while we are all there, exspecially the Naruto character dressed people. By the way the day we all HAVE to be dressed as ninjas has to be Saturday(1/9)because I hear there is a photo shoot. I'm Kiba, Amanda is Shino, I think Ashley is still desciding between Tenten, Hinata and Shikamaru (heehee, Shika is being compared with girls again XP)I'm not sure about everyone else, but don't forget. Anyway I hope to make my ninja shoes soon. If I don't get them by the 20th I may have to spend 30 dollars to get them online. And I know this is last minute, but would anyone consider dressing as One Piece characters? I would like to cosplay as Zollo and I know Ashley would LOVE to do Sanji. Anyway I was going to be Tsuzuki, but that idea kinda fell through. If not don't worry about it. Well let me know what you all think, I hope to hear from you guys. Hillary
I'm going to be late! We're only just leaving my aunts.
Ask a librarian if you need help! I'll see you soon...
Hello, guess what I am actually going to be at the meeting this week. Is anything special going on? I'm not sure how often I will be able to come to meetings, but I will at least try to make a few till Ohayocon. If anyone wants to ask me anything I am defenetly going to be at this meeting. Oh if anyone has manga I lent them please bring it to the meeting. I don't really mind lending my stuff, but I have been apart from them for a while now. If anything is going on this week let me know, if not see you guys later.
Hey, sorry y'all, Kasey and i ((Amanda)) can't make it tomorrow! We're going to my grandma's for a bit, and we won't be back in time. *sad tear* Sorry y'all.
Sorry everyone I can't come to the meeting today. My stupid job is making me attend this dumb meeting for three hours so I can't get out of work till 6..-_-.. I will try to make the meeting next Saturday, hopefully I will see you then. If anyone wants to get ahold of me for anything, Ashley and Libby might have my number, if not my e-mail is email@example.com. See ya guys Hillary
We're selling a coloring book! Details on Saturday.
For now, everyone make something (a crossword, a maze, a wordsearch, a line-art drawing) and bring it to Saturday's meeting!
For those of you who weren't at the meeting on Saturday -- don't worry! We didn't decide anything TOO important without you! Here's what we DID decide:
1) It'll be fairly small. Not <100 attendees small, but not Otakon (or even Ohayocon) big, either!
2) The main audience will be casual to hardcore fans. So prepare youselves for a lot of Cartoon Network references, but be sure you'll meet some subbies as well. ^_^
3) Just about everything will be family-friendly. So no yaoi panel, sorry. :( (Hey, overage people -- lets have an after-hours yaoi party!! That would be so awesome! XD)
4) We're calling it a "festival" or "fest" instead of "con", to escape some of the negative connotations that word can have to parents and non-fans.
5) There will be several guests, including at least one voice actor (Greg Ayers???), Jinky Coronado, Dave Campiti, Mike Deodato (maybe), at least one OEL manga artist, and maybe a couple Disney artists.
6) Lots of games and fun activities. Maybe some traditional Japanese festival games?
7) Panels and workshops -- like, "history of anime", "comics around the world", etc.
8) The date: May 5th and 6th 2006.
Next thing we need to do: decide on a name! So get on your thinking caps and think, think, thiiiink. (Because when we use our minds, take it -- oh, nevermind.) We'll decide on Saturday!
Oh, btw, the meeting is starting at 2:30pm this Saturday! The geneologists are using our room again, and some governement agancy is using the classroom. *sigh*
